It's Not Right! Older Adult Abuse Presentation

It’s Not Right! is a program that addresses issues of older adult abuse, neglect and self-neglect in communities by engaging bystanders. This presentation teach neighbours, friends, and family members of older adults to:



  • See it, by learning how to identify the types of adult abuse and their warning signs.
  • Name it, by learning how to let the person you are worried about know you are concerned.
  • Check it, by asking questions and knowing how to help.

This presentation helps you understand what older adult abuse is and equips you with tips on how to initiate a conversation with someone you are concerned about. Developing a trusting connection is the first step in reaching out for help. 

Presented by Charlene Sitar, Regional Elder Abuse Prevention Coordinator & FCSS Yellowhead County on March 8, 2018, at:

  • Peers Multiplex 1:00 – 3:00 pm 
  • Evansburg Heritage House 6:30 – 8:30 pm
